Merlin likes taking naps, being silly, sitting by the window checking out the other animals outside (cats, dogs, birds, squirrels, etc), giving kisses, and watching Animal Planet

Hearing/seeing the vacuum cleaner and being chased by MooMoo

Favorite Toy:
A toy rod with feathers on the end or anything with catnip

Favorite Nap Spot:
Usually on Mama or Daddy's lap and he can also be found curled up on the chair/couch but lately he's favoring any cardboard box - lol

Favorite Food:
Purina is his primary food - treats are tuna fish, cheese, chicken, and pasta

Talks to birds - we have no idea what he's saying but it's funny to listen to!


Arrival Story:
We first saw Merlin walking around outside our front door over a year ago - he had a collar on and when we said "hello there" he came right up to us and rolled over on his back and let us pet him and rub his belly, obviously a very friendly kitty! We found out that he belonged to a neighbor and they told us that they were looking for someone to take Merlin in since they were moving to Florida. We let them know that if they couldn't find anyone, we'd take him. A day or two later, our doorbell rings, and there's our neighbor holding out Merlin, saying "he's yours!" They also gave us his papers/vet history and we adopted him just days before his 1st birthday and kept his given name. (We like to think that Merlin chose us for his new parents the day he walked over to our front door.) We didn't know what our dog MooMoo would think of him but since she figured out he was here to stay, they get along most of the time, sometimes napping together. Merlin even grooms MooMoo - too cute!

Merlin lives with his dog sister MooMoo. He gets chased around the house at least once a day by her but we've caught him being the instigator at times! He sticks up for himself and they make up afterwards, often taking naps near each other. Merlin is a lovey-dovey boy, loves attention, and will literally fall down and roll over on his back waiting for his belly to be rubbed. He's such a silly cat sometimes!

Happy AnniFURsary to Naomi!

It's been 2 months since my new cat sister Naomi came to live with us and WOW - what a difference! When she first arrived, she was shy, and stayed in her own room. Eventually she and I met and while it wasn't exactly a smooth introduction, we managed to put up with one another's presence. And now, we are getting along so much better! We do zoomies through all the rooms together and even eat out of one another's food bowls (while the other isn't looking, of course - MOL!). We still play fight every once in a while but I'd say she's fitting in just fine. We are truly thankful that Naomi is a part of our family!


I have a new sister!

Hi, everyone!

I have a new sister - her name is Naomi! Isn't she pretty?

She came to live with us a little over two weeks ago. She's still settling in and exploring her new home. We've been getting along so far although she likes to test me and occasionally swat at me. When I get too close, she puts her paw up and Momma has to try not to laugh! Hence, her motto "Talk to the paw!" Very appropriate, I think!

Since Naomi is new to Catster, it would be great if you stopped by her page and made friends with her. Thanks!


It's My Birthday Today!

Yes, that's right! I'm 7 years old today - wow!

Momma sang "Happy Birthday" to me this morning and after I finished eating my breakfast, she gave me some extra treats! Hooray! That's always a good way to start off my birthday! I can't wait to see what the rest of the day brings!
